I stand firmly on the fact that the traditional method of schooling is better than online schooling. Traditional schooling allows one to make personal connections and form relationships outside of the classroom that online schooling cannot provide. I have enjoyed the opportunity to become a part of several organizations on campus that has allowed me to engage in several networking opportunities that have led to internships and future job opportunities. As a business major, I have participated in resume workshops, career fairs, mentorship programs, and employment opportunities. These engagements have helped me improve my interview skills and enabled me to learn the value of building relationships.
Not only does traditional schooling provide networking opportunities outside of the classroom, but it provides a better practical experience in the classroom. I’ll never forget my freshman year public speaking class. Our first assignment was a 3-5 minute PowerPoint presentation on my family. Even though the topic was simple, I could not have been more afraid to present in front of a crowd. My heart raced as I was called to present and all I can recall from my presentation is stuttering over my words numerous times. However, once the moment was over, the applause from my peers gave me the confidence and helped me get over my fear of public speaker. As I continued to practice and complete more presentations, I noticed a dramatic improvement in my public speaking skills. This experience could have not been duplicated in an online class.
Although our generation is turning into a more technologically savvy culture, we cannot ignore the value of interpersonal interactions. These interactions allow us to develop the people skills necessary to work with others. Therefore, traditional schooling provides a more practical education value and a more gratifying experience than online schooling.
Motivation is found within one’s soul.
If you can’t do it when no one is watching then you don’t want it bad enough.
Set goals and achieve them on your own accord.
This is where a leader is born.
No one respects a leader who is not willing to do the hard work themselves.
Be a leader within yourself before you think about leading others.

Usually bloggers start with some super creative first line that grabs the attention of the reader in order for you to keep reading, i.e a lead. I will give it a shot. Imagine a movie that grabs your attention, extracts your soul, and places you in the middle of the most epic and cataclysmal house party ever created. With that being said, words could not describe the mayhem that is Project X.
Warning: Those over the age of 28 years old will not be interested in this movie/blog post so please do yourself a favor and discontinue from reading this post. Project X begins with a loser crew that consists of a poser, nerd, and average nice guy. These kids are about to plan the greatest party known to man in order to increase their popularity and “change the game” as Costa, the poser, stated on several occasions.
However, what set this movie apart from, let’s say Superbad or Hangover, was the fact that these were high school kids shooting a film with one of their best friends video camera. It gives you the feeling that you were actually at the party with these guys as they were saving a midget from being roasted in an oven, a 12-year old security guard tasing a local resident, and a drug dealer’s rampage through the streets setting the whole neighborhood ablaze.
In short, this movie felt like an experience rather than just a film. I highly suggest that if you are in either high school, college, or recently graduated from college, you should definitely check this movie out and see if you are not motivated to throw a party better than that one.
